Culture at the Crossroads: Lilla Serlegi-Tamburitza music from the Alps to the Adriatic
Lilla Serlegi will present a program of music that originates from her Croatian village in Hungary.  It will feture the tamburitza as well as other folk instruments. She will be joined by Novi Stari Tamburasi, Slavonian Traveling Band, Ferenc Tobak and other guests.  There will be ethnic food, drink, and dancing.

Lilla was raised in the Croatian community of Horvatzsidany in western Hungary.  This area and the neighboring Burgenland in Austria are exceptionally rich in Croatian culture. Though Lilla grew up in Hungary, Croatian was her primary language. From early childhood Lilla was recognized as gifted in music. As a young child, she took up the tamburitza, and trained with Drazen Soic, one of the best tamburitza teachers in Croatia.  She performed with traditional Croatian tamburitza bands in neighboring villages in western Hungary including Zidanski Becari, Veseli Gradiscanci, Kojnofski Tamburasi, and  Bizonjski Tamburasi. She also performed with the Peruska Marija Choir, which played a prominent role in the cultural life in her predominantly Croatian village in Hungary. Consequently, Lilla mastered the traditional cultural rituals associated with tamburitza music in both the Croatian and Hungarian cultures. She is highly experienced and comfortable performing and teaching the traditional songs and dances associated with the yearly cycle of festivals
